Cleaning the filter components

Pour 5 L of Filter cleaner into the sand filter. Allow to act for at least 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Maintenance treatment

Acti Chlorine slow 250, 1 tablet per 25 m3 every 7 to 10 days.

If you have a sand filter: Acti multi-purpose tablets, 1 tablet per 25 m3 every 5 to 8 days.

Scale remover treatment

Spread the Acti scale remover product over the tank with a watering can, 1l per 20 m3
